LORD! Me can’t take it no more.

There are 3 interesting things about this tune:

1) It’s a classic verse we all know from Biggie but nobody we’ve asked has heard the actual SuperCat tune before.

2) 3rd Eye drops the term ‘Bling Bling’ for the first time in history.

3) Puff Daddy attempts to copy Third Eye’s hardcore scatty flow, popular in nine-three, and sounds like he’s having a stroke.

Nice tune. We like this dude because his new album is called ‘I fucking hate rappers’.

What? Founder of Stones Throw Records Peanut Butter Wolf is playing Digital?

This is very likely to be dope. If you want to know more check the Facebook event here.

If you want to know what to expect, Stones Throw have kindly condensed one of his shows into under 2 minutes…

Down here at SevenEightyEight Towers we’ve had big cravings for more of The Wire.

Relief came yesterday in the form of  the new HBO series ‘Treme’. This is because the show is written by The Wire’s David Simon Eric Overmyer, and stars Wendell ‘Bunk’ Pierce as well as Clarke ‘Freamon’ Peters.

The music is consistantly good because the focus of the show is a brass band returning to New Orleans 3 months after Katrina. However, one particular tune stood out from the first episode. This is Louis Prima (a.k.a King Louis from the Jungle Book) from 1958 with Buona Sera.

Damn! This tune is so fly it’s in your soup doing backstroke.

Blacastan tells the story from the POV of the actual cassette. Video directed by and starring Lewis Recordings very own Dooley-O. We like to think he chose such a low-budget because it suits the idea of the track.
